They’re also encouraged by his bravery. This couldn’t have been easy, and it took years for him to process it and then speak about it.

Jacob Roloff shines a light on how speaking out helped him.
In a new Instagram post on Sunday, Jacob opened up about the important milestone that has recently passed. He shared a picture taken of him in April 1997 when he was a baby.
In the caption, he wrote, “1 year and 11 days ago I posted my statement about my experience with CSA. I said, ‘I am certain that this is a positive moment for me, and another step toward a brighter future.'”
He continued, “I’m happy to say that I meant it! I felt so free of a useless burden, felt so much closer to my ever-supportive wife, so much more open and confident to myself; on some level it allowed me to become a dad, to finally open that door. I’m so, so happy that I did and I love Mateo more than I could have guessed or hoped or dreamed. Best Christmas present.”
Also in the caption, he included a link to a website about CSA. In the comments, fans are thanking him for this new post and believe it’s going to give others the chance to share their own stories.
